Start small 🚀


Diversify Tech

January 26 · Issue #32 · View online

A free newsletter for underrepresented folks in tech. Get career opportunities in your inbox every week!

Do you ever get caught up in the big vision and get overwhelmed?
I bought the domain a few months back. I need a central place to list the things that I’m working on like this newsletter and Diversify Tech. I also need a blog where I can talk about things that don’t quite fit into coding or diversity.
I overcomplicated it. I’m embarrassed at the amount of time I spent on trying out different static-site generators and templates. 😀
What I want is simple. A page to list my work and a page for a blog post (I have an exciting announcement to make!)
A reminder to myself and to you: reduce scope and start small.
It’s easy to get caught up in the big vision and get overwhelmed. Start with the smallest thing that you can think of. Put it out in the world. Add more when you can.
I reduced the scope for my site. I built the first version in a few hours. I’ll publish it soon. I’ll build on it as I find the time.
Happy Coding!

Documentation suffers from our collective fear of writing something too simple or overstated.

Impact? The same 10 articles, written by the 3 same people dominate search results. They become heros.

People who don’t get it/think differently are turned away.

Write that article.
